A Buffalo woman faces a maximum of four years in prison following her third conviction for drunken driving, Erie County District Attorney Frank A. Sedita III reported Wednesday.

Tammy Karek, 32, of Eden Street, pleaded guilty to felony DWI and leaving the scene of an accident before State Supreme Court Justice M. William Boller. He set sentencing for Dec. 6.

Sedita said Karek admitted to hitting a vehicle turning into a driveway Jan. 28 on Potters Road in West Seneca and then trying to flee. After she was stopped by West Seneca police, a breath test recorded her blood alcohol content at 0.15 percent, nearly twice the legal limit.

Sedita noted that Karek previously was convicted of driving while impaired and misdemeanor DWI.
